Roots of Resilience: Transformations of Identity and Community in Indigenous Mental Health

Roots of Resilience is a new interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers in Canada and New Zealand to study the factors that promote resilience in mental health among Indigenous people across the lifespan, focusing on the response to risk factors in early childhood, school-age children, adolescence and young adulthood. The research is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and Dr. Laurence J. Kirmayer is the program lead investigator for the study.

The aims of the program are to:

  • Identify what is distinctive about resilience in Indigenous communities
  • Share existing models and methods for research on resilience and assist in their development
  • Design and carry out cross-national comparative studies in which the contrast between countries will allow us to identify the role of specific social and cultural factors

There are six main projects:

  • Rethinking Resilience
  • Stories of Resilience, Healing and Transformation
  • Resilience, Citizenship and Identity
  • Determinants of School Performance and Outcome
  • Community Level Factors in Youth Resilience
  • Frameworks for Assessments
